Albert Boxler Alsace Pinot Blanc 'Reserve' 2016
The Boxler family’s Alsatian roots date back to 1673, producing some of the region’s most serious white wines. Located in the Haut-Rhin, the estate’s vineyards create soil-specific bottles based on distinct single-vineyard sites. The Reserve Pinot Blanc shows flavors of ripe stone fruit, beeswax, and minerality. Zesty acidity makes the wine extremely food-friendly, pairing well with spicy seafood or chicken dishes.
Nominally French appellation in and around Strasbourg, where the Rhine River forms the border with onetime-annexer Germany. Mostly aromatic whites from the cool foothills of the Vosges Mountains.
